THREMHALL PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

The Augustinian Priory of St James was founded by Gilbert de Mountfitchet just before he left for the Holy Land or by his son, Richard, circa 1150. It was probably for 5-6 canons, and was dissolved in 1536. An almost rectangular enclosure with a small moated area in the south east corner, and a large fish pond, are all that remains of Thremhall Priory. No Priory buildings now exist, the site being occupied by a house of 18th century date.
